Experiments:
  • "An introduction to superconductivity" by Alfred Leitner originally published in 1965, source: http://www.alfredleitner.com/
  • Isotope effect on the critical temperature. http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/Solids/coop.html mentions that:
    If electrical conduction in mercury were purely electronic, there should be no dependence upon the nuclear masses. This dependence of the critical temperature for superconductivity upon isotopic mass was the first direct evidence for interaction between the electrons and the lattice. This supported the BCS Theory of lattice coupling of electron pairs.

Lectures:
  • Video 81. "20. Fermi gases, BEC-BCS crossover" published by MIT OpenCourseWare on 2014-07-11. Source. Instructor: Wolfgang Ketterle, part of the "Atomic and Optical Physics" series.
    Actually goes into the equations.
    Notably, https://youtu.be/O_zjGYvP4Ps?t=3278 describes extremely briefly an experimental setup that more directly observes pair condensation.
  • Video 82. "Steven Kivelson | Superconductivity and Quantum Mechanics at the Macro-Scale - 1 of 2" published by Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics on 2016-05-12. Source. Gives a reasonable basis overview, but does not go into the meat of BCS it at the end.
